Registrar's Notes

April 5, 2010

Finals week

Final exams are quickly approaching. The schedule for final exams can be found on the Registrar’s website, http://www.wmich.edu/registrar/finalexam201001.htm. All final exams are held according to this schedule, in the classroom where the course normally meets, unless arrangements have been made with the Registrar’s Office for a different room.

If you need classroom space for review sessions or any other meetings during finals, please contact this office to reserve a room. We appreciate your help in eliminating any potential room conflicts so that finals can be given smoothly. Call 387-4310 with any questions related to final exams or room scheduling.

Fall registration

Registration for fall continues, with freshmen (15 hours and more) eligible to register today. As of this Wednesday, April 7, all students will be eligible to register for fall classes. There are now 10,789 students enrolled for fall 2010, which is up slightly from the same time a year ago.
